Gilmore, Robert J.
This report presents an analysis and synopsis of doctoral and postdoctoral leadership grants funded by the Office of Special Education Programs, Division of Research to Practice, from 1990 through 1996. Doctoral level training grants typically propose programming for the preparation of a truly integrated professional. Postdoctoral training grants provide training in areas such as new technology and innovative approaches to training special educators and related services personnel. Issues in the leadership grant program are identified, including whether nondoctoral programs in administration are eligible and whether doctoral programs that are not school oriented should be funded. A section of tables and charts provides information on funding levels of new grants each year, grants by type of degree, major focus areas of grants, annual average costs to train students, number of minority grants, and number of minority students in the leadership program. The following section summarizes highlights of new leadership grants awarded each fiscal year from 1990 through 1996. Attached, but not included in the analysis, are complete summaries of new grants awarded in fiscal years 1997 and 1998. (DB)
